The Payroll Office advised the campus community of the new minimum wage for student employment and a new process for accepting student employees’ tax forms and other authorization documents.
Minimum Wage Increased to $15 for student employees effective fall 2023
In accordance with New York State Department of Labor policies on minimum wage, all student employees at SUNY New Paltz shall receive a minimum wage of $15 per hour in the 2023-24 academic year.
Student employees must submit tax forms to Payroll staff in person
The Payroll Office will no longer accept tax forms, I-9 forms or other employment authorization documents via email.
All such documents should be submitted in person at Haggerty Administration Building (HAB) room 301 so they can be verified by a member of the Payroll team.
Only original copies of the documents will be accepted.
If an employee refuses to meet for a physical document inspection, then DHS’s position is that an employer may not continue to retain the employee as they have not fulfilled their Form I-9 documentary requirements, which includes presenting the documentation for in-person physical inspection, as required by federal law.
